Our heart is to provide affordable theatre for students so we strive to keep our cost minimal. The cost of the show helps us cover the cost of the show expenses. If your student needs a scholarship or you would be willing to offer a scholarship to another student please let us know. Payment is due prior to the first rehearsal on August 2.
Additional costs associated with the show is the cost of jazz or character shoes and costumes. Some costumes are specific to the character, but many costumes can be thrifted and won't cost an arm and a leg. Tickets must be purchased anytime you are seated in the auditorium to watch the show. Ticket prices are $10 - $15 per show. There will also be an opportunity to purchase show t-shirts, accolade ads in the program, concessions, etc.
PARENT VOLUNTEER INVOLVEMENT
Accolade Community Theatre is a volunteer-run organization. We rely on parent involvement to help keep kids safe and ensure that our rehearsals and performances run smoothly. You will be asked to volunteer at 2-3 regularly-scheduled rehearsals, as well as take volunteer shifts during tech week and performances. In total, volunteer time may add up to around 20 hours over the course of the semester. We understand that there are different seasons of life and that there may be special circumstances. We are certainly willing to work with you! But please be aware that participating in a play with Accolade does involve a family time commitment.
You can place your production orders for the Production Fee, T-Shirts, and Accolade ads using the form on this page.
